888mrshu: residual heat is not for outside , i you aint gonna store it don't burn it outside,,cooking wood or heating wood, your choice,but please not outside,wear a coat or pullover dont heat the sky
trackerbignose: This may sound like a dumb question but , in the seated area of it . How do you clean the ducting of soot if there is a long distance from any entry. Currently defining one for outdoor cooking and sitting , I'm just trying to figure out any problems I may have before I get to the .
888mrshu: most people tell you they have a wood burner and they are not lying it burns wood and sends the heat up the stack, do they know their flue gas temp , most rocket stove flues are below condensing temp unless been alight for 8 hours or more hence the steam from flue without a computer controlling it ,or electricity if you have one don't tell anyone because your fuel source will be consumed by somebody that lives near you ive had one for three years an they don't work , but they sent someone from smart meter people to find out why I wasn't using piped gas and only electricity, I pay the rental for gas in case I need it
Clown Whisper: I have a tiny house with a basement.
I want to build one in my basement with no bench.
would it be as efficient if I omitted the bench?
perhaps simply build mass up around the barrel instead?
Joel Warren: I have a rocket mass heater up and running, you can view it here. I have seen some of your instuctional videos. I wondered what you are using for a finish on the dried cob?
Franken Stein: Well, there was something about that stove at 3:00 that didn't look quite right.. a lot of particulate buildup on the the wall. Shoddy design
Susan Sellen: When will this efficiency be combined with beauty? Surely someone could create a visually appealing version of this.
przypadkowyObywatel: as you are removing. ash after burning wood? sorry for my bad english.I do not understand where is the ash from wood?
1971mgb: I see the slits and thanks,but the idea I am installing is air tubes injecting fresh air in the flue to create a secondary burn similar to wood gas generators. Right above the primary flame where any unspent wood gas mould collect. An afterburner of sorts to the primary rocket action.
durlydurl: Hi. I remembered reading your comment when I saw this video: watch?v=9GHgdOXNxh4
Notice the slits cut in the burn tube. It appears to work! Thought provoking.
paul wheaton: have you read the article? You probably want a six inch system.
TheProfKent Kent: these sound great but i've been watching vids on here for a couple weeks but i still can't determine how big it needs to be to heat our 500sq ft cabin. i dont wanna cook the wife and i deff dont wanna freeze the baby lol. anyone have any suggestions?
NuG919: doesn't the barrel get very hot? i always see pillows and such in close proximity to the barrel
carpo719: jeez...that's a nice thing to say about someone's place!! :/
Forex: Where the heck is this place? Everything looks kinda low end building material.
ben dunn: How long do the barrels last? I would think that the top would burn through fairly quickly
Ó Slatraigh: All of that goes through the duct work and out the exhaust, just like a car or a chimney, except this usually has the duct go through a mass and out the outside wall.
apples13able: It seems like a big outdoor JTube rocket stove to me, but I think I see what you are trying to do. With a wood gasifier there is an external air pump of some sort, either an actual fan or the vacuum suction of the engine. Anyway, it would be a good experiment to try, even with a simple L tube cooking rocket stove... I know that when I blow air into the feed tube of my minikeg cook stove it turns it into a forge. Would be interesting to weld some air pipes just above combust chamber angled up..
Living Social: I got a groupon from Miami and almost got tricked. The description was way off for that the deal they were offering. I found groupon reviews that several people had the same issue. Luckily Groupon honor a refund, but my time was wasted.
